First Academy is a great school that offers more than just education. Students, teachers, parents, and faculty are all FAmily. The school really cares about their students with education, support in sports and other clubs, and offer many opportunities for each individual to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. The school is a college-prep school as well, providing AP classes and allowing their students to dual enroll as early as 10th grade. My experience at First Academy has been amazing!

While, yes, First Academy is a fundamentalist Christian school, it is not neccessary for that lens to be put over science and history. It is not acceptable for my history books to make liberals and evolutionists (which they'd have you believe are one and the same) sound like literal satan worshippers. I don't need a paragraph on the evils of Sigmund Freud. This school also took away so much of my access to biology, which I am very passionate about. If you are a parent looking to indoctrinate your child and scare them with visions of hell, this is the perfect place to send your child!
While attending First Academy, I have realized just how lucky the students are to be going there. Not all schools and students have the opportunity to grow in Christ each and every day. Throughout the years, I have noticed my relationship with the Lord getting stronger. The teachers there are also very committed to both their jobs and their students. Whenever the teachers see the students slightly falling back in a certain lesson, they make sure that they do everything in their power to get the student back on track by offering free tutoring after school. There is nothing in this school that I would like to change other than tuition prices.
